    timestamps

    Finally got Ubuntu One to sync on my netbook running Lucid, but have noticed that all the files on my netbook have a timestamp of today (or whatever time I downloaded/sync'd them).

    Is this correct, if I check the web interface they all have the timestamps I expect to see.... ie the correct creation date/time.

    This is correct. When you sync a new computer the files that are downloaded will show the current timestamp.

    Thank you,

    Even if this is an old thread I'll reply just to give my opinion to future web searchers.

    Is this a design choice? If I sync to a new laptop, I want to "look for that file I worked with John two months ago". It's impossible to do so with all timestamps changed.

    Dropbox doesn't wipe out file dates...

    Re: timestamps

    All my timestamps were updated by UbuntuOne a few days ago (March 2012) to the sync time, not the modification time. This is braindead behaviour if it's intentional. If it's a bug then it's unforgiveable.

    I NOW NO LONGER KNOW WHICH FILES WERE WORKED ON LAST

    UBUNTUONE HAS LOST VALUABLE INFORMATION OF MINE.

    especially considering it should be easy to fix. I really don't understand to problem about not supporting it.

    It's the main reason that keeps me from using Ubuntu One. (I'm currently subscribed to a 20GB plan, but I don't even use it, because I don't want to lose my metadata. What a shame)

    Yes, it's the main reason that keeps me from using Ubuntu One, too!

    I've just tried Ubuntu One and I was disappointed to see that it modifies the date time stamp of uploaded files. In this way it's simply unusable!
